    I was in the same quandry when I was going to try this. I just couldn't find my original ML disks. I thought that I would have to somehow buy ML ($29, not that expensive), but I did find my original disks (I save everything).

     

    Going back to ML requires a different HD (old one reformatted or new one). It may cost some one way or another. I don't know how much the other third party options are, but I think it depends on how much value you may find this solution.

     

    BTW, just a precaution if using this solution: Copy your Users and Library files to disk and back up mail just in case the migration doesn't bring over everything correctly. I lost some application registrations and a couple of other items in the process. Whether it was due to the migration is uncertain, but backing up is a good idea anyway.

    Barney-15E, I can't thank you enough!!!

    Gat0r,

    In your experimenting with Pathfinder what advantages over Mavericks' Finder does it have? 

    Also does it have colored labels, which seems to be the major issue with these ASC posts on this thread.

     

    Thanx,

    Peohguy

    Again, Doug-H1955, thank you so much! I'm ordering a new HD. I've kept all of your notes and warnings in a file.

     

    I did—thanks to Barney-15E—find the original Apple purchase so that I can re-download it.

    Hello,

     

    do you think it's possible to go back to ML with the new Mac Pro (2014)

    No — see this Apple doc:

     

    Don't install a version of Mac OS X earlier than what came with your Mac

    Yes, labels are there automatically.  They are the default labeling system in Path Finder.  So far it's just easier to identify files, has easier method to change View Options as well as more Options to choose from.  Very easy to use and co-exists with the standard Finder.

    You can use either one.  I have them side by side in my doc.  Am still on the free trial right now but there seems to be no downside in trying it.

  • Peohguy Level 1 Level 1

    Thanx Gat0r,

     

    Judging from your comments and experience, Pathfinder seems to be a good answer until the developers at Apple decide to fix their current version of Finder. 

     

    I am sometimes reluctant to download software from the Internet especially if it's free.  But with Pathfinder it is only free for 30 days, then you have to pay, so it's really not free.  It seems doubtful that a real company that's been around for awhile would sell you something that would hurt their customers and consequently their own bottom line.  But I have gotten downloads that have affected the operation of my MS based PC enough to be a major nuisance. 

    However, I have seen enough posts from several others who, like you, do like it, so I may take the plunge.  Your post answered my concerns enough that I will probably go ahead and try it, but first I have to get better acquainted with my Mac by reading OS X Mavericks for Dummies and trying things out as I go along.

    The problem is, keeping up with these posts has become abdicative.

     

    Peohguy

  • Gat0r Level 1 Level 1

    Yes Peohguy, I agree.  I was very nervous about downloading it but loved it so much after 24hrs I just went ahead and made the purchase.

    It really seems to be great and they even recommend leaving the Apple Finder working in co-existence with PF.  There are youtube videos to walk you though how to do it.  Spent all morning reviewing YouTube tutorials and learning how to use the features.

     

    Just click the YouTube link at the top of their page, http://www.cocoatech.com/pathfinder/

     

    I am always reluctant to download anything new and never make changes to the basic functionality of my machine.  But you're right, in this case there are a good number of users arleady using PF to make it worth a shot.  They also provide good help files.

     

    Good luck..

  • Fredup Level 1 Level 1

    Totally agree; coloured folders were wonderful. Why can't we have both for those who like tagging?

  • Peter Coxon Level 1 Level 1

    hi. only been using path finder 6 for 2 days. downloaded free and bought it in 2 hours. all my coloured labels reappeared making the folder contents etc far more easily visible. i find path finder a great improvement. i agree with others -mavericks at free was a waste of money... a real downgrade.

     

    my suggestion is try path finder for free -see if it works for you.

     

    amazing how poor apple os is becoming for computer users. maybe great for phones...
